David was a lovely gentleman who was prompt and efficient in unclogging the drains. I was informed when he was on his way and sent a link to track his location so I knew exactly when he would arrive. He was polite and considerate and explained the issue to me once he had fixed it. Definitely will be using this service again! Very reliable!

I used Sharpline for an old toilet with bad pipes and called as a matter of urgency. Chad from Sharpline was very punctual, great communication, so friendly and incredibly professional. He gave us advice and a heads up to what would need to happen to fix the issue long term (which at the time we weren't in a position to do). I highly recommend using Chad as a plumber.

How to Clear Blocked Drains in Sydney

As your local, family-operated plumbing heroes in Sydney, we understand the urgency and frustration that comes with a blocked drain in Sydney. Our team of experienced and friendly plumbers is here to help, no matter how big or small the issue may be. In this guide, we’ll walk you through some easy-to-follow steps to clear those pesky blockages and get your plumbing back in top shape.

Identify the Culprit

Who’s the culprit behind your blocked drains in Sydney?

Blockages can be caused by a variety of things, such as hair, soap scum, grease, food particles or even foreign objects that found their way into the pipes. Identifying the culprit helps you determine the most suitable approach for unblocking the drain efficiently.

For example, if it’s a kitchen sink blockage, the cause is often greasy residues and food scraps. On the other hand, a bathroom drain blockage is usually due to hair and soap buildup. By knowing what we’re dealing with, our team of experts can tackle the issue head-on.

Try the Plunger First

One of the simplest and most effective tools to clear minor blockages is the trusty plunger. This age-old plumbing hero can work wonders in dislodging clogs and restoring the flow of water. Make sure to cover the drain’s overflow openings with a wet cloth or tape to ensure proper suction.

Give it a few vigorous plunges while maintaining a tight seal around the drain opening. The pressure created helps push the blockage through the pipes, freeing up the flow. Remember to be patient and persistent, as it might take a few attempts to get the job done.

Say Hello to DIY Solutions

If the plunger doesn’t quite do the trick, fret not! We have another DIY solution up our sleeves, and it’s safe for both your pipes and the environment. All you need is some baking soda and vinegar.

Start by pouring half a cup of baking soda down the blocked drains in Sydney, followed by a cup of vinegar. The combination of these two will create a fizzy reaction and work its way through the blockage. Let it sit for about 30 minutes, and then flush the drain with hot water.

This method is great for minor blockages caused by organic materials and is a much safer alternative to harsh chemical drain cleaners. However, for more stubborn blockages, it’s best to leave it to the professionals or emergency plumbers in Sydney.

The Wire Hanger Hack

Got a stubborn blockage that just won’t budge? It’s time to channel your inner MacGyver with the wire hanger hack. Take a regular wire coat hanger and straighten it out as much as possible, leaving a small hook at one end. Now, gently insert the hooked end into the drain and fish around for the blockage.

Be cautious not to push the blockage further down the pipes, as it could worsen the problem. Once you’ve caught the culprit, pull it out gently and dispose of it properly. This method works wonders for clearing out hair and other solid blockages.

Leave It to the Expert Emergency Plumbers in Sydney

If all else fails, or if you’re dealing with a recurring or more complex blockage, it’s time to call in the professionals. As your local trusted Sydney emergency plumbers, we have the right tools, expertise and know-how to handle even the trickiest of drain blockages. Our experienced plumbers can use advanced techniques like drain snakes or hydro jetting to effectively clear stubborn clogs and ensure your pipes are flowing smoothly again.
